Not a bad brew...3 out of 5. She pours dark with a tan head. Smells of oak and vanilla. Mouthfeel is smooth with a sharp charcoal bite in the aftertaste. Makes you want to sip it, enjoy it....spend some time with it. Not a bad beer at all

A decent stout. Maybe just a little watery, but still enjoyable.

Bottle to pint glass.

AROMA:Deep woody sweet aroma. Toasted malt.
LOOK: Thin black appearance, medium off white head.
TASTE: is dark chocolate, ash.
FEEL: is too thin for a stout and and then too flat to be a porter/dark ale.

Not bad, but something off here.

This was poured into a nonic pint glass. The appearance was a dark brown close to black color with a thick off white foamy and creamy two finger head. As the head dissipated, thin clingy spider webbing lacing sticks along the sides of the glass. The smell had a big luscious sweet milk chocolate rolling into a dark chocolate and roasty coffee tones. Vanilla and woody notes help to balance. The taste took all of those previously mentioned flavors to combine and make sweet adding a light smoke to further balance. A super smooth creamy roasty sticky sweet aftertaste leads into a big sticky sweet finish. On the palate, this one sat about a medium on the body with a nice roasty coffee to sweet vanilla stickiness on my tongue. Overall, uh...wow, where did this come from! Love this stuff! Definitely would have again!
